Bandido’s Gang – Dance With Bandido’s Gang [CD012]

Ostensibly one of Italo Disco’s great lost producers, we suspect that Bandido’s Gang may well be a nom de plume for one of the label’s many associates. Whatever their provenance, the tracks certainly sound like vintage Italo, with ”Marinche” leading with a pulsating bass arpeggio and synth horn melody worthy of Moroder, whilst the Flemming Dalum & Steen Gjerulff remix adds layers of vocoder and a variety of cosmic accents to its sturdy frame. ”Last Train to Tucamari” meanwhile takes a more languid approach, pulling in an opposite direction to the speeding train samples, whilst Flemming Dalum & Mike Salta’s remix adds some guitar licks, hazy synth atmospherics and even a flute solo which just adds to the classic Italo feel.
